My knowledge of the game is pretty limited (which the main question probably shows). I have seen my nephew play it and he has constructed some pretty amazing stuff, and clearly the game has legs due to its continued popularity. I have visions of my Son playing this, building some amazing stuff and becoming inspired to build a skylift to the moon in real life. But as he is five months old this is slightly premature. I have a Switch, love it dearly and notice that there has just been a version released for the system.
I expect there are a few of you on here who have played, or are playing this, and I wonder if you could tell me about your experiences from a “grown-up” angle. From what I can tell, it is pretty much a do what you like game, but then also recall on various podcasts people talking about battles, and missions and such. I find myself intrigued, and at £20 it is not cheap but not crazy expensive either. I want to know a bit more about the actual game before I take the plunge and spend my pennies though.
